DIRECTIONS- THE EVENT IS HELD AT MALONE & WOLFE FARMS ON NEWLAND HOLLOW ROAD IN WEBER CITY VIRGINIA. NEWLAND HOLLOW ROAD IS JUST OFF US HIGHWAY 23S DIRECTLY ACROSS FROM THE "BURGERS-R-US" RESTURANT". COMING FROM JOHNSON CITY YOU SHOULD TAKE INTERSTAE 26 TO KINGSPORT , ITS A STRAIGHT SHOT AS 26 WILL END WITH A EXIT RAMP ON TO U.S. 23 AT THE TN. -VA. STATE LINE. AFTER EXITING GO STRAIGHT AHEAD APPROX. 2 MILES AND LOOK FOR SIGNS ON YOUR RIGHT. DO NOT CROSS THE HOLSTON RIVER BRIDGE....NEWLAND HOLLOW ROAD IS THE LAST RIGHT JUST BEFORE CROSSING THE RIVER... IF YOU CROSS THE RIVER YOU HAVE GONE TOO FAR. COMING FROM WISE VA.- TAKE US HIGHWAY 23 TOWARDS GATE CITY. AGIAN IT IS A STRAIGHT SHOT LEADING TO WEBER CITY. FROM THIS DIRECTION YOU WILL CROSS THE BRIDGE MENTIONED ABOVE AND TAKE YOUR FIRST LEFT AFTER CROSSING. AGAIN... ITS RIGHT ACROSS FROM "BURGERS-R-US"... LOOK FOR THE SIGNS AND YOU WONT MISS IT. THANKS TO ALL... ROBERT "SAWBONES" WILHELM WEBER CITY DIRECTOR.
